Q COSTA RICA – Although the synthetic marijuana, known as K2, has been in Costa Rica for the past year, it wasn’t until Thursday that it caused the first major intoxication in the country.
Prior to Thursday, there have been occasional reported cases of persons being affected by the K2, found alone, naked and in public raids.

But that all changed radically yesterday morning, when authorities had to respond outside the Venue bar, in San Pedro, when 15 young people were intoxicated and required medical attention; two of which are reported to be in very delicate condition.
